Our second annual Fermentation Festival will be a tour de fermentation! This completely *free* festival will be headlined by one of the world's most renowned fermentation revivalists, Sandor Katz. Also on hand will be dozens of speakers, lectures, demos and small fermenting businesses will be on hand to sample & sell their delicious work. We will also have a competitive & tasty pickle-off with some of Boston's most creative chefs. Join us at the Egleston Farmers Market at 45 Brookside Ave from 10-4 the day of the fest!
The festival will be for all levels of fermenting enthusiasts & lactic acid aficionados. There will be more advanced workshops & demos and a kraut mob for those interested in learning the basics of fermentation.
